Buildtools: Buildtools Australia - "Work Smarter" Faster + Smarter Project Management
Founded in 1998 and developed specifically for the construction industry, Buildtools provides a centralized portal to efficiently manage projects from concept to completion by connecting teams, automating tasks and increasing productivity. Sharing emails, files and knowledge are integral, helping to increase transparency and keep projects on track.
With over “100,000+users and a portfolio of projects in Australia alone exceeding $20-billion”, Buildtools is trusted by some of the industry’s biggest players, and there’s no doubt why.
Their latest innovation includes a new centralized Inbox with automation tools that take project management to new levels. “Imagine your email system on steroids”, Gina comments. Rather than receiving an email and having to switch software to action or delegate, everything is handled within one system with Buildtools MM18. The Buildtools Inbox easily accesses other system modules like Tendering, Drawing Registers, Contract Management or Defects. “More and more of our processes are using smart technology to assist in automating tasks such as sending notifications or drawings out automatically. It's all accessible from your mobile device or desktop, allowing your team to focus on what’s important”, says Gina, Buildtools Australia’s founder and CEO.
“Through technology advances and customer feedback, Buildtools includes features such as smart device compatibility and Outlook integration, keeping users up-to-date even when they’re on the go,” Gina explains. “Our platform offers a model that can be used both as an enterprise solution and as a single project, benefiting every stakeholder.”
“We are heavily investing in artificial intelligence, machine learning and RPA technologies for future releases,” Gina adds. “It’s an incredibly exciting time for our industry.”
Create accountability and minimize the costs of disputes
Buildtools increases efficiencies from the tendering process right through to defect management. “There is significant commercial risk in managing a construction project, which is why it is crucial that meetings, drawings, email conversations and defects are all documented and stored securely”, says Gina, “With Buildtools, every transaction is tracked and traceable.”
Information history is automatically compiled and easily retrieved, creating accountability that not only protects businesses but minimizes the costs of disputes.
Flexibility and Licencing Options
Easy to implement, use of Buildtools can start well before a project has even commenced. The system seamlessly takes you from concept through to completion, keeping Clients, Project Managers, Contractors and Consultants connected in real-time. The shared platform keeps data secure and accessible from any device.
Buildtools Australia’s industry-leading suite of project management tools maximizes efficiency, productivity, and control over documentation. The platform is available in various configurations and can be based userlicences, project licences or enterprise licences. Visit www. buildtools.com.au to learn more.
